Dragon Age Legends Road to 100k Likes



Here are the slides from my GDC Online 2011 talk, “Dragon Age Legends Road to 100k Likes”. Talk description from the the program guide:

We live in a new world where borders between game developers and their players have broken down, where a Like can be more valuable then an ad campaign and where your fans can literally reach you 24 hours a day. In this metrics driven talk, Dragon Age Legends’ producer Ethan Levy explains the successes and failures of the game’s innovative pre & post launch social marketing strategy. From its MMO style Closed Beta program, to its fully animated trailer, to getting a Facebook game front paged on IGN, Dragon Age Legends was a game of firsts in the social gaming space.
